Athea GAA Club Notes:
Athea GAA Easter Scrap Metal Fundraiser:
Athea GAA Club will hold a scrap metal fundraiser during the Easter weekend on Saturday April 8th, Sunday April 9th and Monday April 10th from 10am – 4pm daily at the Carpark at Athea GAA Club. Items accepted include bikes, radiators, sinks, stoves, pots, pans, cutlery, old cars, farm machinery etc. Please see local press and social media for the full list of goods accepted. Offloading facilities will be available at the Club during the times mentioned above, and a collection service will also be available upon request by phoning Tina on 087 9355667. This is an ideal opportunity to clean up your home or farmyard and help raise funds to help us pay off our current loan for our pitch & walking track which currently stands at €25,000. Thanks to everyone for their continued support.
